Andrew Thurlow from the Jacksonville Business Journal wrote a great article covering the expanding Jacksonville craft beer scene.

Excerpt:

"Although the Southeastern United States has lagged behind the West Coast when it comes to craft beer, the region — Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee — had nearly 160 craft breweries by the end of 2013, a roughly 20 percent increase from 2012.

The bulk of that was in Florida, where 66 breweries generated an economic impact of nearly $876 million."

There was also a neat article from Ed Stansel of Amber Waves at the Florida Times-Union about a gentleman named Dave Podgett who is hiking across Jacksonville to visit all of the breweries on the Jax Ale Trail. He'll stop by the latest addition to the trail, Zeta Brewing Company, and visit Seven Bridges as well. How cool is that?! Good luck, Dave!
